Mexican police arrest suspect in Mackintosh murder Record Staff

Police in Mexico have arrested a man suspected of killing former Comox Valley resident Ron Mackintosh, who had

RON MACKINTOSH

retired near the coastal Mexican town of Barra de Navidad. A police report says Andres Gomez Ibarra, 26, was detained in the municipality of Cihuatlan June 26, says the Guadalajara Reporter newspaper. He and a minor were charged with two counts of armed robbery in the town of Villa Obregon, where Gomez Ibarra resided. Investigators said Gomez Ibarra is “presumed responsible” for the murder of Mackintosh, who was kidnapped and beaten but left alive last October. A police report suggests Gomez Ibarra may have ties to a drug cartel. Mackintosh, 64, was with his pet dog Nikko when he was last seen Oct. 21 in the town of Melaque, Jalisco. He had dropped off a friend in his B.C.-licensed Jeep Patriot. The next day his girlfriend, Marie, reported him missing to police. The newspaper said his decomposing body was found outside Barra de Navidad two weeks after he was reported missing. He had been strangled to death with a belt. His vehicle and dog were never found. Mackintosh had lived in Nanaimo before residing in Courtenay and Cumberland. After retiring a few years ago from Koers & Associates Engineering, he moved to Barra de Navidad where he had previously vacationed and where he had developed numerous friendships. Mackintosh leaves behind a son and daughter.

IT WAS A hot time in the old town indeed when the Comox Valley celebrated Canada Day on Monday. These spectators tried to keep cool while watching the parade down Fifth Street. PHOTO BY RENEE ANDOR

The heat is on; more to come Erin Haluschak Record Staff

While it was a sweltering day to celebrate Canada’s birthday, Monday’s temperatures fell just a few degrees short of record-breaking. Monday, the Comox weather station recorded the summery temperatures at a high of 27.3 C, falling shy of the hottest July 1 on record of 29.4 C in 1951. Although it didn’t beat the record, the weather significantly improved upon past Canada Days, which was a much cooler 15.7 C, 15.8 C and 18.5 C in 2010, 2011 and 2012 respectively. The mercury did topple other records across the province, with Environment Canada noting 15 heat records set on Canada Day. The hot spot for both the province and the country was 40.3 C in Lytton. The normal for Comox this time of the year is around 22 C, with a minimum of 12 C. The sub-tropical weather is predicted to

bring warm temperatures throughout the week and weekend, with sunny skies for the next four days with a high of 29 C Monday. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Sun, heat, music, food, fun and people showing off their national pride filled downtown Courtenay Monday as the Comox Valley celebrated Canada Day. The July 1st Committee’s Karen Whitworth said she’s pleased with how the celebrations turned out this year. “It was the best weather that we have had in the 20 years that I’ve been involved with Canada Day — that was fabulous,” Whitworth said excitedly Tuesday. “The parade had a terrific number of people and groups that took part and that’s always great to see.” Fifth Street filled up quickly Monday morning as brave runners raced down the already sizzling street shortly after 10 a.m. during the annual Fifth Street Mile footrace. By the time the annual Grande Parade started down Fifth, a little after 10:30 a.m., the sides of the road were packed with thousands of excited children and adults, plus a few pets. Live entertainment, food and craft booths, games, contests and a huge kids zone were just a few of the things to check out in Lewis Park. Comox Rotary’s 26th annual Ducky 500 race down the Courtenay River to the Fifth Street Bridge drew a large gathering of spectators again this year. Kathy Langman claimed first prize, a seven-day Caribbean Cruise for two or $5,000. Tyrna Jeans won a trip for four to Disneyland for placing second, and Jeff Nickerson won a Las Vegas trip for two for placing third. Ducks placing fourth through 10th won various other prizes. According to Holly Grant, who is a Comox Rotarian

THE PARADE DOWN Fifth Street had a terrific number of people and groups taking part. PHOTOS BY RENE ANDOR and co-chair of the Ducky 500, a whopping 6,000 ducks were sold at $10 a piece this year. She pointed out that’s 150 more ducks than last year’s total, and all proceeds will go to Rotary Club of Comox projects, as with every year. “Last year we donated $10,000 to Dawn to Dawn: Action on Homelessness, we supported the food bank, the Comox Valley Child Development Centre and the (Comox Valley) Therapeutic Riding Society,” said Grant, as she named off just a few as examples. “We sure appreciate the community support from everybody who buys a ticket to all the great sponsors that we have who do the corporate sponsorship, and all the Rotarians who volunteer their time on the holiday.” Meanwhile, Simms Millennium Park featured the Kinsmen Pancake

Breakfast in the morning, followed by various entertainment and contests throughout the day. Whitworth noted a “really fun new event this year” was the Westview Ford Sumo Challenge, in which participants, who were “mostly young men,” got to suit up and fight it out for prizes, sumo wrestler style. One of the few events Whitworth said she’d like to have seen more people at this year was the Ladies Nail Driving Competition (sponsored by Home Depot), which she said is one of the longest running contests at the Comox Valley’s Canada Day celebrations. She noted the Tea Dance, held in the Native Sons Hall, was so popular the space was filled to capacity. The Celebrate Canada Concert — which was held that evening at the Sid Williams Theatre, and featured numerous musicians

and dancers — was also filled to capacity, according to Whitworth. Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings all featured live music in Simms Park as well. The contest theme for 2013 was ‘As Canadian as…’ and Whitworth said food seemed to be on people’s minds with most of the responses being food oriented, like Nanaimo bars, Saskatoon pie or poutine. “When people are thinking about Canada they’re thinking about their stomachs,” she said with a laugh, noting organizers are already getting plans underway for next year’s event. She added the committee could use more volunteers to help plan next year’s event. Anyone interested can e-mail info@comoxvalleycanadaday.ca.

City asked to help with permit

Scott Stanfield

Record Staff

Wendy Leblanc is doing what she can to prevent her son Isaac, 27, from living in a seniors home. Appearing before Courtenay council Monday, Leblanc is raising funds to renovate Isaac’s duplex. Her son has a mysterious disease that has left him paralyzed. His house would need various additions such as a wheelchair ramp but Wendy is facing financial challenges. A permit, she notes, is particularly expensive.

As a mother I’m begging you, can â?? you please help with the permit? â?ž Wendy Leblanc “As a mother I’m begging you, can you please help with the permit?â€? said Wendy, who was accompanied by her friend, Evangeline Mathura. They have raised about $10,000. The goal is $50,000. They hope to begin construction in the next couple of months, but could use further assistance from the public and/or businesses. “My heart goes out to

you,� said Coun. Starr Winchester, who questioned if the request falls within council’s mandate. Mathura understands council faces numerous requests for assistance. City staff said a bylaw amendment is needed to waive fees, in answer to a question from Coun. Manno Theos. The Leblanc family and Mathura are wait-

ing to hear back from government on a grant approval that would significantly reduce renovation costs. “I know that’s not the place (extended care) for a young man to be,� said Coun. Ronna-Rae Leonard, who suggested writing a letter to senior levels of government. After nearly two years of hospital stays, doctors finally diagnosed Isaac with a rare form of multiple sclerosis called Marburg, but doctors still aren’t completely sure of the diagnosis.

Free swims return There will be free swimming on Saturday afternoons this summer at the Comox Valley Regional District’s aquatic centre, thanks to continued sponsorship from Canadian Western Bank. Free swims run from Saturday, July 6 to Aug. 10 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. There will be no free swim on the Aug. 3 long weekend. Everyone is welcome on a first-come, firstserve basis, restricted only by pool bathing load capacity. The wave pool, slides, sauna and hot tub will be open, as will the fitness centre. “Canadian Western Bank has been a great supporter of these free swims year after year,” said Jennifer Zbinden, the CVRD’s manager of recreation services. “They recognize the value of the benefits of health, wellness, accessibility and community spirit which fits with our goal to bring people to our facilities that may not otherwise have the chance. And this is also a way of giving back to our regular patrons.” For more information, visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/rec. – Comox Valley Regional District

City OKs‘expert support’ for wood bridge Staff in best position to provide facts Scott Stanfield Record Staff

In a 5-2 vote Tuesday, Courtenay council approved a Jon Ambler resolution for city staff to provide expert support to a citizen’s group hoping to construct a wooden pedestrian/ cyclist bridge across the Courtenay River between Simms Millennium Park and Sixth Street. Rather than automatically saying yes or no, Ambler feels it is council’s role to create an environment where people can come for-

ward with ideas. Staff members, he added, are in the best position to provide people with factual information. If the wooden bridge comes into fruition, Ambler said it will become part of Courtenay’s infrastructure. Coun. Starr Winchester and Mayor Larry Jangula did not support his resolution. “Building a bridge next to another bridge doesn’t make sense,” said Winchester, who suggests a bridge connecting Third Street and Lewis Park would make more sense. Coun. Manno Theos supports the resolution but feels the proposed location is “intimidating” because it is not

Student travel initiative provides many benefits Record Staff When the next school year starts so will a new-tothe-Valley Active Student Travel initiative. Designed to increase and sustain active travel to and from school, the initiative was suggested by Trustee Sheila McDonnell, transportation committee chair, at the January Comox Valley Board of Education meeting. Trustees voted in favour of contributing a one-time grant of $10,000 from the transportation budget, which was subject to other Valley organizations chipping in $20,000 by June 30.

During last week’s Board of Education meeting, McDonnell noted other organizations had put forward $16,000 so far, making total finances committed to the project $26,000 rather than $30,000. Her briefing note pointed out the vast majority of the initiative costs relate to salary and benefits from hiring an active student travel co-ordinator. She suggested still going ahead with the initiative, but structuring it to cost $26,000 rather than $30,000. The initiative will be reviewed to determine its success before any other

grants from the school district are committed to it. The Comox Valley Cycling Task Force committed $6,000 and City of Courtenay committed $5,000 this year and next year. Though the Town of Comox did not commit funds, as the matter came up too late in its budget process, it applied for a $5,000 grant from Healthy Families BC, which it is still waiting to hear back about. McDonnell pointed out the Village of Cumberland is interested in the initiative as well and has asked for a presentation about it at a council meeting. The co-ordinator, who

is expected to be hired by August, will work with schools and community stakeholders to identify barriers to active transportation and develop a written action plan for each participating school, as well as Best Routes to School map brochures, among other things. McDonnell later told the Record the co-ordinator will likely work with four or five schools during the first year. “There’s a couple schools that have real congestion issues that we want to work on, and then there’s a couple of schools that are so interested already, and

showing all the signs of wanting to move forward,” she said, noting Cumberland, École Puntledge Park, Brooklyn and École Robb Road elementary schools will likely be participant schools, but plans aren’t finalized yet. School district goals of the initiative are: • increased student activity linked to student success; • reduced costs for parking lots, supervision time; • increased safety at schools, better air quality; • school community capacity building, leading to more parent engagement;

• educational opportunities McDonnell notes volunteer groups already do programs such as walking school buses and there’s bike rodeos at various schools thanks to the Cycling Task Force, but having a co-ordinator will help tie things together. “When you have a little co-ordination to help the volunteer effort it just makes such a huge difference,” said McDonnell. “I’m quite excited about it.” For more information visit the Active Travel to School Comox Valley Facebook page.

3 Options for your glass containers

The glass collection bins will be removed from the recycling depots July 15, 2013.

1 Reuse

2 Repurpose

The depots are for the collection of products that can be recycled. For glass to be recycled, it must be sorted and shipped to out-of-province factories to be made into new glass, as there is no longer a glass recycling facility in BC. The glass collected at the recycling depots is of a poor quality in that it is often contaminated with other material, meaning that, in many instances, the product cannot be recycled anywhere.

3 Dispose

1

Residents are encouraged to reuse their non-refundable glass containers as many times as possible. Many glass containers (such as pop, juice, wine, beer and liquor bottles) require a deposit to be paid when the product is purchased, so residents should take those containers back to the point of purchase or to the Return-It bottle depots.

2

Residents can drop off their non-refundable glass containers in the bins that have been moved to secured and safe locations at the Campbell River and Comox Valley waste management centres. The glass accepted at these locations will be repurposed as aggregate for roads or ground cover in the landfill. Unlike food waste, glass is an inert material that does not decompose in the landfill to produce leachate or emit harmful greenhouse gases.

3

Residents can choose to place their non-refundable glass containers in their household garbage for pick up.

*NOTE: It is important to remember that glass containers are not accepted in the blue box municipal curbside recycling programs. For more information visit

LAND OF PLENTY

A History of the Comox District

Infantry History THE CANADIAN SCOTTISH REGIMENT (PRINCESS MARY'S) Continued from June 27, 2013

Like the 102nd Battalion of World War I fame, the Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) has been closely associated with the Comox District. Its history may be traced back to, and before, World War I. During World War I, it was known as the 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) C.E.F., formed on September 2, 1914 at Valcantier, Quebec. It was the first and only battalion to be designated “The Canadian Scottish.” On March 15, 1927, the Canadian Scottish Regiment, through petition, became officially allied with the Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment) of Britain. In May 1930, Her Royal Highness Princess Mary, Countess of Harewood, the Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Scots, became the Colonelin-Chief of the Canadian Scottish Regiment – hence, the addition of “Princess Mary’s.” In 1931, “C” Company of the Canadian Scottish (Princess Mary’s) was established in the Comox District in Courtenay by Captain Griffin. Griffin died in 1933 and was replaced by Lieutenant R. Thistle. Others who were active at the time were Second Lieutenants W. Inglis, A. Constable, D.I. McMonnies, W. Anderton, C.S.M. N.E. Fox, and Sergeant L.R. Kirby. Major D.B. McMonnies, Sergeant Major R. Shipperbottom and Sergeant H. Kerton were also very much involved in the early days of “C” Company, which continued to thrive and was ready when World War II broke out

in September, 1939. Many local volunteers’ names are listed in the history of the Canadian Scottish Regiment. To mention them all is impossible, but a local history demands the mention of some. In Ready for the Fray by R.H. Roy, we find quotations mentioning Comox District volunteers on active service in France. These men are Lieutenant-Colonel R. Schjelderup D.S.O., M.C. and Bar, C.D.; Captain John Bryden; Lieutenant I. MacDonald; Private J. Hassel; and Private “Bud” Tweedhope. “C” Company of the regiment had its difficulties in the early stages of its establishment. One of the difficulties which plagued “C” Company since its inception in 1931 was, as might be imagined, the problem of decent quarters. The Comox District Agricultural Hall was the first drill hall used and it was most inadequate. Not only was it in disrepair, but there appeared to be little hope of improving, or indeed retaining it in the future. Lieutenant-Colonel Sergeant described the situation in 1932: Am having a bit of difficulty with the Department in Ottawa. They refuse to take our Courtenay drill hall over, and as a matter of fact, refuse to consider any other obligation even though it is only $20 a month. The Agricultural Society there refuse to come down in their price, so I am between the devil and the sea. We cannot afford to eliminate “C” Company and cannot afford to carry on with the rent.

"C" CO. Canadian Scottish (circa 1937). Identified are: H. Kerton, G. Kerton, B. Pearce, D. Guthrie, H. Thomas, R. Biscoe, K. Robarts, J. Dennis, W. (Piper) Stewart T. Dennis Yet carry on they had to do. The company continued to use this building for over a year and conditions worsened steadily. Early in the following year Captain Thistle wrote: I find that it is nearly impossible for us to carry on with our parades owing to the condition of the said building; windows broken from the outside, doors broken off hinges and the front door being opened allowing children to play there, leaving it in a filthy condition which necessitates our cleaning it up before using it on drill nights. However, it was near a large park which could be used for drill purposes, and it was also handy to the Comox Rifle Range which could be used in good weather, “a strong point with the Company and a great asset.” Fortunately for the battalion, Mr. F.A. Lindsay was appointed Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel before the situation deteriorated much further, and through his warmhearted generosity the unit was able to help

“C” Company. In 1934, part of the Native Sons of B.C. Hall was taken over. Although a vast improvement, this new drill hall was still not entirely satisfactory, as the part occupied by the Quartermaster Stores and Orderly Room was not completed nor heated. Each company and unit of the various regiments throughout B.C. and Canada experienced great difficulty in obtaining materials and equipment. During the depression years of the Dirty Thirties, money for military training was not readily available. The idea of military training was also not popular with many people. There were few employers indeed who, during the Depression years, saw any sense in allowing one of their employees to attend a two or three-week course of instruction at some military school. There were too many able men willing to work six days a week who would not ask for any privileges of

that nature. If the employee wanted to be a soldier, then let him go to China or Spain or Ethiopia. There was plenty of fighting there in those years. And as for Hitler, he was a fool with a lot of excited fools supporting him. Everyone knew Germany was financially on the rocks and had learned its lesson in 1918. So why bother with the Canadian militia? And why bother about the alarmist view and warnings of that backbench British MP, Mr. Churchill? Such were the opinions of all too many men in business, political and other circles in Canada. In spite of negative attitudes and lack of money, the various companies of the Canadian Scottish Regiment carried on. “C” Company in Comox District continued to train faithfully and made good use of obsolete and inadequate equipment. They developed systems of their own to overcome deficiencies. To take advanced training was nearly impossible.

Courtenay fossils rubbing shoulders with celebs Renee Andor Record Staff

Celebrities of the fossil world have been checking out the Comox Valley’s collection of marine fossils lately. Courtenay Museum and Palaeontology Centre’s Pat Trask says recently he was surprised to see wellknown palaeontologist Jack Horner — who was the technical advisor for all of the Jurassic Park films — walk through the museum doors. “His name is probably one of the top three or four palaeontologists in North America,” says Trask, adding he’s not usually the type to be star-struck but his jaw dropped when he saw Horner. “That guy is so famous — he’s on all the documentaries about dinosaurs, he has five crews in the field as we speak — and he had heard about Courtenay and the fossils that we’ve discovered here on Vancouver Island, so he was really excited to see them.” Jim Haggart from the Geological Survey of Canada and Peter Ward from the University of Washington, both of whom Trask calls “top of their field,” were here during the fall looking for marine fossils on a section of beach. He notes artist Ray Troll and director of Natural History at the Smithsonian Insti-

PAT TRASK AND his Courtenay museum friends have had some impressive visitors lately. PHOTO BY RENEE ANDOR tution Kirk Johnson were here working on a follow-up to their book Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway. “The Courtenay Museum is going to be included because they photographed a whole bunch of our collection and they were quite impressed,” adds Trask, noting these fossil experts aren’t just visiting to see what the museum has upstairs, they’re very interested in what the museum has in its basement. “We have at least 10,000 fossils down

in the basement…We have a type specimen cabinet down there too because we have new species of animals, things that have never been seen before in fossil record, and we’re finding them here on Vancouver Island.” Trask estimates the museum has at least five or six species that have never been seen elsewhere in the world. “So we get scientists from all over the world here,” he continues, noting the Courtenay museum has been busily building rela-

tionships with those scientists. “Especially Japan — we have a really good connection because we share the Pacific, and it turns out that the north island of ‘Hokkaido’has the same palaeogeography, meaning it was born the same way at the same time, and it shares the Pacific, so we share a lot of common fossils.” Meanwhile, the museum has been revamped since the fall. Some improvements include fresh paint, window improvements, and — a variety of new exhibits. Well-known for the Elasmosaur find in 1988, the museum still features a model of the large marine reptile front and centre, but now the actual fossilized creature is stretched out in a long display case below the hanging model. Another interesting addition is a new model of the Tylosaurus, which was a member of the mosasaur family known as the T-Rex of the Sea. This marine reptile is believed to have feasted on sharks, squid and smaller

mosasaurs, among other things, and it had two extra rows of teeth on the roof of its mouth, plus and double-hinged jaw allowing it to eat larger prey. Though the model has been brought in from Manitoba, a similar animal was found near Dove Creek Road during the construction of the Inland Island Highway years ago. The fossil is incomplete, but Trask notes the jaws found match those of a mosasaur, and could possibly be those of a Tylosaurus.

The museum also offers various other new exhibits, fossil tours seven days per week, birthday parties, and summer programs for kids. The summer programs include educational activities, behind the scenes exploration and field trips. They

are offered on a variety of dates throughout July and August, and are offered in two sets to kids aged five to seven, and eight to 12. For more information, visit www.courtenaymuseum.ca, e-mail museum@island.net or call 250-334-0686.

NIC’s one-year Tourism & Hospitality Management certificate. “I enjoyed the classes and teachers so much, I signed up for the diploma within a couple of months,” Tessa said. The program combines degree pathways with co-op placements to give students opportunities and industry experience.

learn leadership sKills online Advance your career with the Office Management certificate

To Tessa, the program’s business focus is an added resource—giving her, and her employer, a broader skill set to draw on. “It’s a good mix of business and tourism. Once I’m done the diploma, I can take two more years of classes and have my business degree. I really feel it’s important to have that balance.” She is currently completing a co-op placement at the Whistler Chateau Fairmont, one of many local and uniquely West Coast work placements available to students.

Gain the skills to advance your career, without leaving your day job. With NIC’s Office Management certificate, you’ll graduate with a broader understanding of workplace issues while developing management skills for the next step of your career.

The experience also positions her for a management career in the tourism industry, which, according to the BC Tourism Labour Market Strategy, is expected to need more than 100,000 new employees by 2020.

Join students from Victoria to Port Hardy in discussing modern office issues from social media to stress leave. Study on your own time, share your experiences, and learn from classmates who bring diverse experiences and perspectives from the public, private, or not-for-profit sectors to team projects and group discussions.

“The Fairmont is such a great job and such a challenge I might come back for another season.”

Once I’m done the tourism diploma, I can take two more years of classes and have my business degree,” Tessa Pollard, Tourism & Hospitality Management diploma.

Butterflies are not just beautiful reminders of lazy summer heat, they are sensitive indicators of the state of the environment. There is a very close relationship between the health of native plants and the butterflies pollinate them. Butterfly distributions across the landscape are largely affected by climate change and by herbicide usage. Understanding how butterfly population numbers fluctuate in the Comox Valley helps us understand what stresses our local environment faces. As part of its public educational mandate, Comox Valley Nature will carry out its Public Annual Butterfly Count at Cumberland Marsh on Saturday, July 6 at 10 a.m. It will be led by local entomologist and photgrapher, Terry Thormin. This is a unique opportunity for the public to learn to identify common butterflies in our environment and to understand what role they play in our environment. Participants should meet at the entrance to the Chinese Village, at Jumbo’s Cabin in Cumberland on the Road to Comox Lake, at 10 a.m. Saturday. Some butterfly nets are primarily available to YNC members, members of the public are therefore encouraged to bring their own nets. This event is open to all members of the public, free of charge. It is also a Young Naturalists Club event, which is organized by Lisa Zervakis, the retiring YNC Chair. CVN has greatly appreciated Lisa’s leadership which has introduced many children and their parents to the Comox Valley’s rich natural heritage. Comox Valley Nature is a non-profit society affiliated to BC Nature which fulfills its educational mandate by hosting monthly lectures, organizing free weekly guided hikes and undertaking a variety of environmental projects. Aside from its main activity as a non-profit, Comox Valley Nature also supports specialized groups (Birding, Botany, Garry Oak Restoration, Wetland Restoration, Photography and Young Naturalists Club) which have separate monthly

BC Bike Race gets off to smokin’ hot start in Village “Tropical hot!” weather smothered the racers on the opening day of the 2013 BC Bike Race. With temperatures pushing 28 C. and the humidity soaring, race co-founder Dean Payne describes day one of the BCBR as the hottest and most humid on record. “The past two weeks of rain saturated the ground and now the moisture is just rising out of the ground. I’ve never sweated so much in my life.” Day one was held in Cumberland on June 30. Day two moved to Campbell River on July 1, and the race continues through to the finish July 6 in Whistler. Day one was a stage for regional riders Kris Snedden (Kona) and Neil Kindree (Specialized/Corsa Cycles) who took first and second after a day of a three man Kona tag-team that worked over last year’s winner, Kindree. Kona rider Spencer Paxson overcame an early crash to earn a step up onto the third step. Day one also proved to be full of early fire-

BC BIKE RACE participants make sure the annual event is a familyfriendly affair. works in the Open Women’s race as last year’s winner Wendy Simms (Kona) had no chance to catch a moment in the shade with Kim Hurst (Mud Cycles) of New Zealand hungry for a chance to unseat the Queen of Lean. Hurst had Simms against the ropes on the initial climbs up to Forbidden Plateau

before getting bested in the singletrack. Unfortunately a directional misstep put Hurst back two minutes coming into the finish line. Simms should take note and prepare herself for the game Hurst is ready to play. “I’m really looking forward to a long hard week of riding.” The first of four ferry

rides over the Pacific Ocean to Vancouver Island gave riders a feel for the world of water and mountains that British Columbia is famous for. After departing from the BC Ferries boat the final bus ride to the open arms of Cumberland is a welcoming opportunity to rest in a true Island town. With a main street

Busy season on mountain From winter sports teams to yoga retreats and various community groups, the notfor-profit Vancouver Island Mountain Centre (VIMC) at Mount Washington had another great winter season hosting people from all over B.C. and beyond. Building on the number of guests in the inaugural year, 2012/2013 saw the number of overnight guests grow by 64 per cent; nearly 400 people registered for outdoor programs, more than 450 used the GoodLife Fitness-sponsored Centre and over 225 met in the ample conference space. Most of the guests came from the Comox Valley area (57 per cent), a further 34 per cent from other parts of Vancouver Island and nine per cent visited from other parts of the province. “The key ingredient to our success has been strong and consistent community support combined with the tireless efforts of our Board of Directors,” said Andrew Scherck, manager of VIMC. “Courtenay Canadian Tire donated a new barbecue, ViaSport BC provided funding which, in partnership with the Vancouver Island Biathlon Club, allowed the development of a new Discover Biathlon Program and the Rotary Club of Courtenay funded the outfitting of the selfcatering kitchen.” The support has continued into the spring and summer seasons with funds to this unique community centre at Mount Washington coming from ViaSport BC (a new Orienteering course), Human Resource Development Canada (two summer student hires) and the Comox Valley Regional District (crucial operating

funds). “The snow left earlier this year, which means a longer hiking season in the sub alpine environment,” added Scherck. “We are open for business year round and offer incredible deals on accommodation in the non-winter months. It’s a perfect location to start your outdoor adventure, host your meeting or use as a training base in the 3,500-foot alpine.” VIMC provides group accommodation for up to 40 people, full kitchen and dining facilities, ample parking, amazing views of Mt. Albert Edward, plus meeting rooms and the VI Mountain Fitness Centre. Find the VIMC at Mount Washington at the end of Nordic Road across from Raven Lodge and Strathcona Park’s Paradise Meadows.

Cool head will help with ex Question: My son is getting married this summer and I wish I was more excited than anxious. The problem is that my ex and his family will also be attending the wedding. The divorce was disastrous, and the 10 years since have been a nightmare. My ex alternately ignores the boys or lavishes them with gifts and money. His family have treated me and the boys very cruelly. Even though they have a rocky relationship, my son does want his dad to attend the wedding and has also invited his dad’s family, but doesn’t want them there. My sons are not aware of most of the terrible things the family has done to me and don’t know how anxious I am about attending and i’d like to keep it that way. I have had trouble with my ex and his family at other events in the boys’ lives like school concerts and soccer games and I keep envisioning all the nasty ways his family might cause problems at the wedding. The closer it gets, the more trouble I am having. I am actually worried about getting sick or having a panic attack at the wedding. How am I going to get through this? This is certainly a difficult situation. I congratulate you for not sharing your feelings with the boys. I can give you some general suggestions that might help you manage the day, but you might also find it useful to talk to a counsellor about your feelings and some more specific ways to manage. I assume that there will be some other members of your family attending. If there is someone among them who you could confide in and who would be able to help you through the day, and who is also cool headed, enlist them. Ask them to stick close to you so that they are present during any interaction between you and any difficult people.  Maintain your cool. Avoid alcohol, which will impair your judgment and loosen your inhibition. When contact is unavoidable, treat them courteously - even if they are not behaving in kind. Try to keep interactions brief; excuse yourself with the need to perform a task or tend to a guest. Prepare a few polite and socially accept-

Consult a Counsellor

Leslie Wells able phrases to use in response to just about any provocation. Some examples are: say something complimentary about your son or his new wife, comment on some aspect of the ceremony/photos/ food/venue/guests, or just smile and nod. If they are trying to draw you into an argument, try saying “I haven’t thought about it like that before”, or “that’s an interesting point of view”, then finding a reason to leave the conversation. Everything you can do to bolster yourself will be helpful; think about what you will be wearing. This may seem a little strange, but if you view your clothes and jewelry as armour, you might choose items that help you feel a little protected.  If you don’t already know how to breathe from your diaphragm, learn how and practise before the wedding. Breathing this way will help you to feel calm and avoid a panic attack. Learning or honing your muscle relaxation skills is also a good idea. On the wedding day, be aware of the tension

You didn’t mention any physical violence in the past so I am assuming there is none, however if I am mistaken, you may also need to have a safety plan that includes calling 911.

in your muscles and your breath and work to stay relaxed.  Find a phrase or short affirmation that leaves you feeling strong/confident/peaceful/hopeful/loving and recite it silently and frequently through the day. Pair that with a few deep breaths and a quick body scan to make sure you are relaxed. Stop recalling all the past problems and imagining the worst case scenarios for this day. Just thinking these thoughts is stressful and will leave you feeling anxious and vulnerable. Instead focus on your plan for coping.

Unique identity worth celebrating This past long weekend, Canadians coast to coast celebrated the 146th anniversary of our nation’s founding. There is much to celebrate. Earlier this year, Canada was ranked the third-best country to live in by the Organization for Economic Cooperation (OECD), and we are consistently ranked high in the United Nations’ Human Development Index. By any yardstick you choose, Canadians enjoy a standard of life far above that of the rest of the world. However, sometimes it seems we don’t realize how good we have it. For the majority of us, our claim to citizenship is merely an accident of birth — we are the lucky few who started life in a society that values peace, education, and public welfare, as well as prosperity. If you ever want to truly understand how good we have it, talk to one of the seven million Canadians who immigrated from around the world. For Canada’s immigrants, being a part of this great nation was a choice, one that may have brought some hardship, but also great reward. It hasn’t always been an easy transition, however. In the past, when cultures clashed in Canada, what resulted was unjust and often violent. And while it is important to celebrate the great achievements of our forefathers each Canada Day, it is equally important to remember the many dark chapters in our history, so that we learn from them and ensure they are never repeated. Episodes such as the the Chinese head tax, the Komagata Maru incident, the residential school system and the shameful confiscation of property of Japanese-Canadian internees during the Second World War still resound today. Today, as always, Canada is a nation of immigrants. It is what makes us unique, and what makes us great. Each culture that has come to Canada has brought with it its own customs and traditions, and in so doing, has added to Canadian society and to the Canadian identity. And we are all the better for it. — Peace Arch News

Record Question of the Week This week: Sixty-three per cent of respondents say they don’t plan on attending

the Comox Air Show on Aug. 17. Next week: Do you plan on visiting the Wednesday Comox Valley Farmers Market in downtown Courtenay? Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord.com and got in the Poll on the main page. There was great, summery weather for Canada Day celebrations all around the Comox Valley Monday, and the hot temperatures seem to be continuing to the weekend.

The battle between Maple Pool Campground and the City of Courtenay is now in the hands of the courts, with a possibility of 50-some tenants being homeless if evicted.

HOW MUCH TIME is too much when it comes to children and smartphone or electronic use?

FILE PHOTO

Electronics threat to childhood? Dear editor, How much time does your child spend on the computer or on their cellphone? The ever-growing phenomenon of digital and electronic communication has its benefits and uses, but there is a growing concern amongst parents about its negative and harmful aspects, especially as it pertains to our children. We see it around us every day: noses buried deep in iPods or smartphones; rampant text messaging and image sharing. People of all ages are walking around looking like they are talking to their invisible childhood friend until you notice their earphones — it used to be only the FBI had technology like that. Now you can see 10-year-olds with $500 devices that do everything but make popcorn. Kids are shunning social interactions and holing up in their electron-

ics-laden rooms. It has become a global epidemic, and as with all epidemics, their must be an intervention or the damage might be devastating. Don’t get me wrong — I love my laptop and think the latest gadgets are truly amazing and have their place, but the way technology has tsunamied into our lives has caught us off-guard and we need to pay attention to the dangers. Kids have replaced socializing with texting; reading with watching and thinking with memorizing. Mental and physical health issues that have heretofore been nonexistent, are climbing at an alarming rate. A concerned friend recently sent me the following article from The Telegraph, (June 24, 2013) called ‘Surge in Digital Dementia,’ that begs reading from every parent whose child

owns an electronic device or spends time on the computer. It begins: “Doctors in South Korea are reporting a surge in ‘digital dementia’ among young people who have become so reliant on electronic devices that they can no longer remember everyday details like their phone numbers.” I urge every involved parent, caregiver and educator to read this article and seriously consider the fate of our children with this new threat (that is actually not that new, but only newly researched). And indeed, it is a real threat. But controlled, regulated and used in an intelligent, safe manner, the Internet and the devices we use to access it in all its wonder, can be be a miracle, and not the heart of our ruin.

COURTENAY RESIDENT AND cyclist Don Munroe looks over the proposed options for bike lanes on Fitzgerald Avenue in Courtenay. FILE PHOTO

Time to put plans into action: Courtenay Dear editor, Congratulations, Courtenay, you understand the bicycle infrastructure advantage. Do not doubt your good decision; it is time to put plans into action and build the Fitzgerald cycling infrastructure. Build for bicycles, and everyone benefits. We all know cycling offers a nonpolluting way to get around, stay healthy, enjoy the outdoors and be energy independent “off the grid.” It is social and fun, peoplefriendly, and community oriented. Creating bicycle infrastructure improves quality of life, calms streets and creates vibrant city cores.

People frequently say to me that they want to cycle but they don’t feel safe cycling. It is ironic though that there are far more people injured or killed in cars than any other mode of travel, yet we somehow feel safe in a car. Unfortunately, as we build our roads to accommodate more cars and faster speeds, more people are killed or injured in cars. The outcome of high volume car traffic is that less people then walk or cycle, perpetuating the car congestion problem. The Lerwick and Ryan roads intersection is a case in point. More money will have to be poured into fixing

the ‘crash problem’ that may not be fixable if we continue using 20th century ideology. One has to imagine how much safer and more costeffective this situation would be if a decision was made at the outset to design the city using the ‘complete streets’ model. The City of Courtenay is taking steps to join the progressive cities worldwide that recognize the value to build for people, not cars alone, by planning bike lanes for Fitzgerald. The money has already been spent on proposal writing, design time, consultation and public process. The city was successful in receiving a

$44,161 Fitzgerald bike lane grant from the BC government, a grant created to help cities like Courtenay design their city for our 21st century needs. In this information age, the evidence is undeniable that sustainable cities invest in a bicycle network, not just one trail but many integrated trails and cycle ways across the city. A change in direction is scary for people, but the model has been tested around the world, it works. So don’t look back, bike lanes on Fitzgerald is an advantage for Courtenay. Sue Vince Royston

Assistance must go to underprivileged Dear editor, How cynical! I think one must be absolutely cynical or completely daft to take as partners in helping the poor people of the third world the large Canadian corporations and mining companies exploiting their resources. Yet this is again the approach taken by the Harper government by recently

amalgamating CIDA under the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development. Whether cynical or daft, the Harper government is diverting Canadian development assistance for the poor countries to companies whose interests are opposite — in principle and practice — to the well-being of these poor people. There are numerous

well-known evidences and testimonies with this regard. Mr. Harper knows the role played by multinationals in the impoverishment of several third-world countries. He is thus making another dangerous right turn in favour of the very rich, whose first victims, in the truest sense, will be the poorest of the world. I hope pressures from the public, from opposition par-

ties and from members of their own party, will force Harper Conservatives to change their mind towards CIDA and to adopt a much more human approach towards the poorest. Assistance to the underprivileged is fragile and must go to the them, not to large corporations. Bruno Marquis Gatineau, QC

COURTENAY, B.C.

Blues icon Thornton inspired Elvis, Janis Joplin Paula Wild Record Arts

She was gutsy and tough, inspired Elvis and Janis Joplin, and broke ground for women singing the blues, a genre she once described as “nothing but life, good food, good times and good sex.” Vancouver Island MusicFest brings Big Mama – The Willie Mae Thornton Story to the Comox Valley the weekend of July 13 and 14. Canadian jazz icon, Jackie Richardson, will portray Thornton as she shares moments of her life while performing at a fictional L.A. jazz club in the 1970s. “I’m a huge blues fan and Big Mama Thornton was one of the best,” says VIMF artistic director/executive producer Doug Cox. “I saw The Willie Mae Thornton Story at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and thought it would be a wonderful way to introduce something a bit different to MusicFest.” Originally written by Audrei-Kairen Kotaska for a 15-minute Lunchbox Theatre production in Calgary, the story of the legendary Thornton was so well received that director John Cooper convinced the playwright to expand the script to a 90-minute production. Cooper, who has directed more than 130 productions at theatres across Canada and won three Jessie Richardson Awards for outstanding direction, teaches directing for UBC’s Department of Theatre and Film. “Big Mama is a metaphor for surviving and overcoming adversary,” he says. “It presents an incredible woman in a man’s world making her art, living her life and remaining positive and creating great things. “And Jackie is a national treasure. She sings from a

She is always amazing but sometimes she’s jaw-dropping amazing.” Willie Mae Thornton left her Alabama home when she was 14 to make her way as a singer/songwriter. Over time, her amazing voice and stage presence capti-

vated audiences. She was the first person to record Hound Dog, was nominated for the Blues Music Awards numerous times and, in 1984, was inducted into The Blues Foundation’s Hall of Fame. Her song, Ball ‘n’ Chain, later recorded by Janis Joplin, is on the Rock and Roll Hall of

Fame list of 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. But the music industry isn’t easy at the best of times and, for much of her life, Thornton, who was born in 1926, was a black woman working in a man’s world. “She was one of the toughest of the tough,” says

Jackie Richardson. “She suffered pain and hard times and broke ground for my generation and later generations of women in the music industry. In order to hold her own and make a strong stand, she learned to fight, drink and cuss just like the men she worked with. But that came with

a price. She was only 57 when she died in 1984.” A Canadian singer and actress, Richardson has received the Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program for The Gospel According to the Blues and the Dora Award for the musical Cookin’ at the Cookery. She’s also been nominated for the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television Gemini Award and the NAACP Image Award for Best Actress in a Television Movie. “I don’t try to sound like Willie Mae in Big Mama,” she explains. “Willie Mae had a unique voice and no one can replicate that. My goal is to figure out what she was like inside, to understand and portray her spirit. “We first performed Big Mama in 1999,” she adds. “Now 13 years later, I get to take my life experience and re-address the role with a much different perspective. That’s been a wonderful bonus for me.” Performing onstage with Richardson are music director Ron Casat on keys, Kevin Belzner on drums and Tim Williams on guitar. Casat and Williams were part of the original production. Like many VIMF performers, the cast of Big Mama will also participate in workshops and other onstage events. “Big Mama is a celebration of a strong, powerful woman,” says Cooper. “Willie Mae experienced difficulties in her life and struggled to overcome them. It’s an incredible story of perseverance and strength. Every time I see Big Mama, my spirit is lifted.” Paula Wild is a published author and regular contributor to the Comox Valley Record’s arts and entertainment section.

Where Robert Johnson meets the Rolling Stones

DAVID GOGO PLAYS Joe’s Garage Saturday.

Vancouver Island’s David Gogo returns to Joe’s Garage in Courtenay Saturday with his 13th studio album, Come On Down. With a worldwide fan-base and impressive list of accomplishments, his new album is sure to perk up everyone’s playlist this summer with its perfect blend of Gogo originals and hand picked reinvented classics. One of Canada’s hardest working and most prolific guitar virtuosos, Gogo will hit the road with shows across the country including many festival dates with Courtenay in his sights. Sometimes the best art comes out of a journey. Before writing and recording his latest album, Gogo took a pilgrimage along the Blues Trail starting in Memphis and traveling through Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama. Highlights included sitting in with local musicians at The Shack Up Inn, Ground Zero, and Red’s in Clarksdale, Mississippi. He appeared as a guest on Sonny Payne’s renowned King Biscuit Radio Hour, and toured the legendary Fame, Sun, Stax, and Willie Mitchell’s Royal Studios. Gogo also traveled to towns mentioned in Robert Johnson songs, poured bourbon on Johnson’s grave, and even went down to Rosedale with his rider by his side, as those famous Crossroads lyrics proclaim.

Cardinal/ Jasmine Colette that has a sound largely influenced by old jazz swing, blues, delta and ragtime such as Lonnie Johnson, Eddie Lang, Blind Willie Mctell, Skip James and Django Reinhardt. This duo has a sound like a fourpiece blues swing band. Cardinal plays rhythm and lead guitar, harmonica and sings. Colette sings, plays double bass, snare drum with one foot and a bass drum with the other. A metis of Cree heritage, Cardinal was introduced to blues and jazz from musicians in jazz clubs and crowded bar rooms in Montreal and New York City. He has joined with Colette, a multi-faceted performer/ bassist originally from the Alberta badlands. She has toured extensively over the years with various bands, and collaborated, played or recorded with Wyckham Porteous, Paul Pigat, Bill Bourne, Andrew Loog

Inspired by his journey through the birthplace of the blues, Gogo wrote six original tunes and combined them with six reinvented yet classic covers to create a new album that not only honours traditional blues but also gets you dancing with some good old gritty rock ‘n roll. Come On Down takes you to a place where Robert Johnson meets the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac meets Ray Charles. It’s a wild ride that Gogo navigates with ease, ingenuity and style. Back by popular demand, Gogo will hit the stage with vigour and gusto. He is a hard-working blues/ rock guitarist and has a history of awards to show for it: three Juno nominations, the Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, Western Canadian Music Awards’ Musician of the Year, and twice named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year. Over the last couple of decades he has performed with blues and

And if Mother Nature listened to Leslie’s pleadings, hundreds of lilies and poppies will be wide open, boasting about their colour and size. Her most recent paintings explore the theme of Edge: subterranean, cliff, free fall, vantage, brink. These altered landscapes are full of bright colour and crisp detail. In pursuit of silence, Dunsmore honours nature, producing mysterious scenes that

are somehow familiar, following a thread of dreamscape or memory. Her studio and garden are at 4791 East Road on Denman. Visit her website at www.lesliedunsmore. com. For more information phone (250) 3352918.

Vancouver Island author Lorelie Rozzano has taken her own life experience shackled by the chains of addiction and turned it into a series of fictional novels that weave firsthand experience into compelling story. Rozzano will be at the Courtenay Library Saturday, July 13 from 2 to 3 p.m. to launch the first in the series, Jagged Little Edges. The topic is about addiction — and hope. She will be on hand to talk about the book and, more importantly, she wants to have a conversation with people about addiction and how it affects us and our community.

Puzzling… Fun by the Numbers: Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box.

Raiders want everyone to play youth football Club asks that enrolment be done ASAP

The Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football Club has improved the programs they will offer in the 2013 fall season. “This fall, all Valley youth ages eight to 18 can participate in our programs regardless of where they go to school,” a Raiders’ spokesperson said. “In addition to our PeeWee and Junior Bantam community football teams, we will now have Bantam (ages 14-15) and Midget (ages 16-18) teams this year so each and every boy or girl from any school or area can participate.” In 2012, the organization hosted PeeWee (ages 8-11) and Junior Bantam (ages 12-13) programs under the Raiders banner and administered Junior Varsity (ages 14-15) and Senior Varsity (ages 16-17) high school football programs at both Mark Isfeld Secondary and G.P. Vanier Secondary Schools. “This year, we have approached the VMFL and will be able to reach all youth in the Valley and beyond… no longer will only selective schools with only those who are within those school catchments be the only ones able to play the game past Junior Bantam,” the spokesperson said. “We have heard the community loud and clear… they wanted all youth to be able to participate and that is exactly what they will get,” the spokesperson

MAPLE POOL UNITED defeated Kelowna in its second match at the Western Canadian Qualifier for the Homeless World Cup Saturday at Lewis Park. The host team from the Valley placed fourth out of 10 teams. Squads from Calgary, Victoria and Vancouver also participated. Players were competing for spots on Canada’s national team for the world street soccer championships in Poland in August. Above, Max Porcher (second from left) moves the ball upfield.

added. “The ball is now in the community’s hands. We need them to get out and register at the Lewis Centre NOW. “In order for us to field the Bantam and Midget teams this fall, we have to provide rosters to the VMFL prior to Aug. 1… so it is imperative that parents get down to the Lewis Centre and register their players as soon as possible.” The Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football Club will be hosting an Open House/ Info Session at the Lewis Centre on Wednesday, July 10 from 4 till 7 p.m. “Come on out to find out more about our organization and the exciting season ahead,” said the spokesperson. “If you wish to play, we need your written commitments (enrolment) on or before Friday, July 26 as we must submit rosters to the VMFL by Aug. 1. If you know you can’t make the info session, no problem, you can sign up anytime at the Lewis Centre.” The Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football Club is the master organization that has provided all contact football programs in the Comox Valley since 1989. “We are a not-for-profit organization relying solely on volunteers to deliver football to the youth of the Comox Valley. We are partially funded by the Province of British Columbia,” the spokesperson noted.

Roller derby league works together There was quite a commotion in Powell River on June 15 when it was taken over by derby girls in town for a doubleheader hosted by Pow!Town Rollerderby. The entire Salish Sea Rollers League was in attendance: the Brick House Betties of Cumberland were matched against The Committed of Saltspring Island and the Rink Minx of Comox Valley were up against the hosts Pow!Town. The league’s team of referees and non-skating officials, the Coastal Call Monitors, were also on hand to ensure skaters played safely and the event ran smoothly. The opening bout was The Committed vs. the Brick House Betties. The Betties took an early and strong lead using strategies such as backwards bridging which keeps the opposing jammer behind the pack and minimizes her scoring chances. In the second half, The Committed made a comeback and the score got close as the clock ran out. To Head Coach DB’s relief, the Betties won 224-179. Pow!Town put in a good effort against the Rink Minx Rollergirls in the second bout of the doubleheader but did not have the experience to win against the Minx’s hard-hitting game. The Minx’s blockers efficiently held back Powell River’s jammers. Jamming for the Rink Minx, Whiskey Jack could not be stopped and scored a 30-point jam (a jam is a tow-minute play; jammers are the point scorers). There were some hard hits exchanged, particularly between Lee-Thal Lyanimal skating for Pow!Town and Foxy McMuff of the Rink Minx. Although both teams had a tough time keeping out of the penalty box, the Minx wrapped up the game with a score of 367-206. Both the Betties and the Minx won their bouts at the doubleheader, so they are eager to play against each other in Courtenay on July 6. The two teams have not faced off on the derby track in almost a year. Skaters from both teams often fill in rosters if necessary and volunteer at each other’s bouts. The collaboration of teams within the Sal-

and the Brick House Betties respectively, Lita Riot and Handsaw Gretel have collaborated here, but compete against each other on the track. Both teams are sister teams within a house league, so look forward to some sibling rivalry when the Betties host the Minx at the CVSC (arena 1) on July 6. Visit www. brickhousebetties.com for details or join the teams on Facebook. – Brick House Betties and Roller Minx Rollergirls

Saturday night produced some amazing racing capped by yet another amazing firework show. A season-high seven Roadrunners hit the track, and #53 Steve Cashan started off well by winning his first heat race of the year. #8 Ryan Guest, who was leading the heat race but had to withdraw due to mechanical issues, was determined to get to the winners circle, and found himself in the lead on lap one of their 15-lap feature and never looked back en route to his first win of the 2013 season. In the Figure 8 division, #15 Cindy Kennedy once again flew by her competition, winning one of two heat races and the 12-lap main event. In the Wilroc Lite cars debut, #26 Cam McLean started off his night with a dash win and a great 10-lap heat race win. McLean ran into mechanical issues in their 30-lap main event, knocking himself out of contention, opening the door for #98 Lance Wade, who led all the way to take his first win of the 2013 Wilroc season. The real battle was for second and third, with #55 Jeff Bird getting around #22 Mike Haslam on the final lap to take second. Twenty-six Hornet cars hit the track Saturday. In the B division, #81 Don Stormo, filling in for his son Jeremy Stormo, made his way from the back to the front in 12 laps to take the lead and led the last eight laps to take his first-ever Hornet car main event. #12 Raymond Fortier took second, with third going to #88 McKenzie Collins, which was his best finish of the year. In the A division, #02 Daryl Cahill dominated once again in their 20-lap feature race. Cahill took the lead on lap eight en route to winning his second straight main event. Once again the main battle was for second and third with #01 Kevin Lawrenuk finally getting around #14 Kyle Fallowfield on lap 15 to take runnerup honours. Seventeen Crash to Pass cars battled on Saturday. #25 Darrell Wardrope, who hadn’t raced at Saratoga Speedway in over 10 years, dominated to win the B heat with the A heat going to #72 Travis Stevenson, who also led all 10 laps. An exciting 25-lap

main event capped off the night. The first 15 laps saw cars flying everywhere on the track, dropping out left and right, then coming back out left and right. #01 Jeff May finally grabbed the lead on lap 15 and held off a hard-charging #89 Gregg Sagmoen to win yet another main. Due to mechanical issues from the night before, only five Wilroc Lite cars arrived on Sunday. The first heat winner was #11 Duane Zeinstra and the second was #08 Shane Woolcock. A very fast 20-lap main event saw Zeinstra lead all 20 laps and hold off #55 Jeff Bird and #15s Mark Stuart to take the win. A season-high 28 Hornet cars hit the track on Sunday. #98 Nigel Neufeld won the D heat, #53 Rowland Westra took the C, #03 Jennifer Lawrenuk won her second straight B heat, and the A heat was won by #14 Kyle Fallowfield. In the 25-lap B main, slower cars made for an interesting start, giving #53 Rowland Westra a jump on the field. Westra led for 18 laps until #81 Jeremy Stormo passed him en route to the win. In the 25-lap A main, #55 Trevor Dicus took advantage of his pole position to lead all the way and win his first ever A main, holding off #02 Daryl Cahill. A 19-car Crash to Pass field set a Saratoga Speedway record on Sunday. #69 Mike Whitehead narrowly won the B heat, with the A going to #73 Sheldon Hopp. Eighteen cars lined up for a crazy 15-lap main event with #01 Jeff May dominating the field and winning his second straight main. In the Roadrunner division, #73 MacLaren Inglis won his first ever Roadrunner race, leading all eight laps of the heat. Due to mechanical issues only five Roadrunners made the main event, with the win going to #53 Steve Cashan, who led all 10 laps for first ever main event victory at Saratoga.

Swim clubs pool resources at B.C. champs The Comox Valley Aquatic Club Sharks and Campbell River Killer Whales came together to form the North Island Predators to compete at the June 21-23 B.C. AA Long Course Provincial Championships. The 15-swimmer squad was small but mighty and seemed to be getting up on the podium almost every other race. Friday started with an exciting swim by CRKW’s Maya Ruelen, who achieved her AAA standard in the 800 freestyle, which is one of the longest races in the pool. This was the first medal for the Predators, but would not be the last. CVAC swimmer Emma Neufeld also ended up on the podium Friday night with an amazing race in the 200 IM, placing second in the senior girls category. It was a lifetime best time for Emma. Emma also placed third in the 50 freestyle and was not done there. In her last race of the night, and in one of her best events, Emma rose to the occasion and took second in the 100 backstroke with another lifetime best time. The second day at the championships proved just as exciting as the first, with another AAA qualifying standard met by CRKW swimmer Jocelyn Diemer in the 200 breaststroke as she swam her way to a second spot finish. The Predators now have 28 swimmers qualified for the AAA Long Course Provincial Championships that will be happening July 4-7 at UBC. The second night of the meet was Ethan Ashley’s time to shine with a silver medal in the 100 freestyle and a gold in the 400 freestyle. Ethan started with a huge swim in the 100 freestyle, taking off over two seconds, and moving from fifth to second to make it on the podium. He was up next in the 400 freestyle and with a huge best time won the event by almost 25 metres. The Predators carried their momentum through to the last day of the meet. With another AAA qualifying standard met by Ashley in the 200 freestyle, the number of Predators qualified for the AAA Provincial Championships jumped to 29, which is

the biggest team that has ever been sent to the meet. Joshua Dolman had qualified for two finals going into the last night of the meet, starting off with the

200 freestyle. Making a huge improvement from his morning swim, Joshua stayed in the race the entire way, placing fifth overall, moving up a spot from his morning swim.

Joshua was the last Predator to swim on the third night, and had his best race of the weekend with a fifthplace finish in the 200 backstroke and a lifetime best.

It was a great weekend overall for all the North Island Predators, and a great end to the season for all the AA swimmers. Next up for the Predators is the AAA LC Champion-

ships at UBC, followed by the Senior National Championships and the Age Group National Championships at the end of July. – North Island Predators

New Code of Practice brings stronger care standards for horses in Canada

On June 27, 2013, a new national Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Equines was published, achieving a progressive new standard for the welfare of for hundreds of thousands of horses, donkeys and mules throughout British Columbia and across Canada. The BC SPCA’s Dr. Bettina Bobsien, one of the country’s top veterinary specialists in equine medicine, represented Canada’s SPCAs on the Code Development Committee. The 2013 Equine Code is a vast improvement over the previous Code, which had not been updated in over 15 years. New standards will protect horses from neglect and mistreatment, and prohibit some painful practices. The Equine Code issues firm, science-based requirements for nutrition, health care,

• Lameness must be addressed, either through specific therapies or changes in management or workload; • Horses must have some form of exercise or turnout at least every six days out of seven; • Handlers must be familiar with equine behaviour and competent in humane handling techniques, either through training, experience or mentorship; • Horses must not be trained in a manner that subjects them to unnecessary pain or injury; • Tail docking for cosmetic purposes is unacceptable and must not be performed. The entire Equine Code of Practice can be downloaded on the National Farm Animal Care Council’s website. Codes of Practice and

breeding, space, comfort, air quality, exercise and humane training. It also bans cosmetic tail mutilations (e.g. cosmetic tail docking). The Equine Code now stipulates 75 requirements for the care of horses, donkeys and mules (the 1998 Code contained only 25 “must-do” statements for on-farm care). Highlights include: • Horses must have adequate nutrition and water and access to shelter that protects them from extreme weather; • Horses must have enough space to lie down in normal resting posture, stand, walk forward and turn around in comfort; • Feet must be trimmed and / or shod as often as is necessary to maintain hooves in functional condition;

Animal Cruelty Investigations The Codes of Practice lay out the expectations for standards of care to be provided to farm animals in Canada. The Codes are used as a reference standard for animal cruelty laws to determine what constitutes “reasonable and generally accepted practices” in investigations launched under B.C.’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Owners of horses and other equine species are expected to implement and comply with the Code. The new Equine Code will be used by BC SPCA constables responding to cruelty complaints, to provide education to horse owners on the minimum standards of care, and, if necessary, to demonstrate minimum acceptable standards in court.

Ask THE VET

The Hay Days of Summer are here, and our pets need protection. The sun causes the same skin burn on our white doggies and kitties. If your pet’s pink skin is getting red then don’t be afraid to lather on some SPF20+ sunblock. The gel form works better to make it deeper into the skin before being licked off. It’s the ears and noses that really get burned. If your pet’s going on a plane, freeze a water bowl before fixing it to the door of their crate. Sure helps on a hot day between legs and keeps the bowl full longer. Remember it takes only 10 minutes to pass out in a hot car, so don’t take the chance, tie your pet up outside the store or leave them at home this ride. Going for a long run with your doggie? Make it early in the day. Heat exhaustion occurs before they actually collapse. Stay away from pest

Tips for bringing home a puppy

Oh yes the backyard party. Well you know who’s watching for the spoils. Pads will burn on pavement and beach barnacles deliver nasty cuts. Trim your pet’s hair but avoid shaving. Layers of coat keep away sunburn and actually prevent over heating. Do the screen test in apartments and avoid a fall. Do you have your pet’s floatation device yet? With a wet spring and now the heat, the Ticks and fleas are ferocious right now and will get worse over the next 3 months. Now’s the time to use your prevention measures. We’ll help you kick off the season! Get a COMPLIMENTARY Advantage application with your pet’s preventive care exam with us in July.

(NC) – Are you a new pet parent? It’s important to get off to the right start by preparing your home for the new arrival. Puppy Proofing Your Home: Take a moment to crawl on the ground to see the world through your puppy’s eyes. Make a list of all the potential dangers you notice and remove them from your puppy’s curious reach. Be sure to remove poisons like laundry detergent or chemical cleaners and even some house plants. Puppy-proof your plugs, hot spots and other potential hazards such as space heaters or tubs and pools. It’s also a good idea to set up gates for areas where you don’t want them to wander. Food and Nutrition: A healthy feeding routine starts with premium puppy food and also includes feeding the appropriate amount, sticking to a schedule and avoiding “people food”. Training: Dedicated

dental care. Like people, puppies have temporary teeth that emerge after 6 weeks and permanent teeth

which begin to emerge by about four months, so it is important to establish a good oral health routine.

Captain Michael Egerton Corfield Born June 25, 1928 in Duncan, B.C. Mike died on June 25, 2013 in Comox, B.C on his 85th birthday. Mike is survived by his wife Jean Corfield. Mike and Jean were married 54 years ago in Vancouver, B.C on October 11, 1958. Mike began his marine career with Canadian Pacific Steamships in 1946 for 12 years. He then joined Northland Navigation for 12 years. In 1969 he joined the B.C Coast Pilots Ltd. He was a Marine Pilot for 24 years also serving at the company president and a board member for the Pacific Pilotage Authority during his years with the B.C Coast Pilots. Mike retired in 1993. In 2004, Mike and Jean moved from West Vancouver to Comox to be closer to family. Mike is also survived by his son, also Captain Michael Corfield, of the Canadian Coast Guard, his daughter-in-law Joanne, grandchildren Mark and Jessica Corfield, his daughter Janice Ricciardi of San Francisco, CA, son-in-law Andre and grandchildren Tallula and Delilah Ricciardi. Jean and family would like to thank Oceanview Extended Care and Dr. Konway for their help with caring for Mike the past 5 ½ years. The family will have a private service at a later date in Duncan, B.C where Mike will rest in the Corfield family plot. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We joked around and laughed a lot And talked for hours on end. How did I get so lucky? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re my lover and best friend And this little note Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing Holds the special love we shared. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the part of me that goes with you. Always, everywhereâ&#x20AC;? Love always, Jean
